Then Ed and Motorola Engineer Greg Buchwald did their magic with WJR-AM with Detroit Tiger games that sounded like you were in Tiger Stadium
I also remember listening to U of M football games on WJR and it also sounded like you were in the Big House. The placing of mics was perfect with the CQUAM system.


It's all about the money!

I do remember WJR having a great quality sound I think it was in the 90’s and the AM Stereo thing was great. I still have my Realistic AM stereo receiver that hooked up to your home system the home system is gone but the AM receiver survived.

I have the Realistic Motorola AM Stereo Component. There was another one just sitting in the Radio Shack in Cheboygan and I arranged for Del Reynolds, the franchisee then, to swap it for some Art Vuolo Video Aircheck Tapes. Art used it to record the U. of M. Football Games off of WJR in Stereo.


Is THAT where they got the idea for the 486-SX?

If you’re talking programming content and not sound quality well I’ll have to say my pick is CKLW the Big 8.
A buddy of mine in Florida sent me this link. Needless to say it is quite detailed:

History - CKLW-AM
